Bike to Work Day
This annual event is celebrated by thousands that chose to leave their cars at home and experience the joys and benefits of bicycling to work, school, and for local errands. Energizer stations will be set up throughout Marin; there will be Super Stations hosted by MCBC staff and volunteers. Volunteers are needed to help count people on bikes and pass out treats to riders.
Tour de Marin
Tour de Marin blends safe, sane and scenic routes with wholesome foods and incredible support - And no one is left behind! This year with two route options, the traditional 38-mile route and a new metric century 66-mile route, we need more amazing volunteers to help make this ride even more amazing.

Represent MCBC at your favorite events, like Bike To Work Day, The Fairfax Festival, the Marin Century and Biketoberfest! Outreach is the most important way to get others interested in the programs and projects that make Marin a great place to bike. It’s also a great way to meet new people who share your passion for cycling!
Behind the scenes, MCBC volunteers keep the office operating smoothly by helping with mailings, data entry, compiling new-member packets, filing, archiving newspaper articles, graphic design for special event pieces, writing articles, and office cleanup. Let us know if you have a few weekday hours to spare to help us in this very important way.
MCBC provides free valet bike parking throughout Marin County at key community events, offering cyclists the opportunity to have fun at events while avoiding the traffic congestion and parking hassles. This very-social all-volunteer service includes bike parking, promoting MCBC, and recruiting new members.
Please help MCBC get the word out about our events and quarterly news. Enjoy traveling around the county as you distribute brochures, newsletters, and posters for us to a pre-determined list of local bike shops, libraries, community centers, and businesses. Distribution can even be done on your bike!
Got great phone skills? Help call MCBC members to attend local meetings, collect feedback on how MCBC is doing, invite lapsed members to renew, discuss ballot issues, special events, etc. We provide the script; all you need to do is speak clearly and cheerfully!
